Joseph Hanly – book on Mixed Farming

Joseph Hanly, Associate of the Royal College of Science, Ireland, and Inspector of the Department of Technical Instruction for Ireland, has brought out an excellent and useful work on “Mixed Farming”. It is a practical textbook on Irish Agriculture and from the press notices, it can very fairly be described as a book to have far reaching and probably determining effects on the future development of farming practice in Ireland. It is the first comprehensive account which has appeared of modern farming practice in Ireland. It is a storehouse of useful information and appeals to the practical farmer as well as the teacher or student of agriculture.

His origins

Mr. Hanly was born in Barnaderg. He was the son of late Mr. John Hanly who was one of a well-known family, resident for years in that district. A brother of his Mr. Patrick Hanly lived at Carramore near Barnaderg, but emigrated to Canada with his family. His sister Mrs. Commins and her daughter also emigrated to Canada.


Mr. Joseph Hanly was educated at Barna and then at the College of Science where he won the distinction of Associate of that excellent institution which is doing so much good for agriculture and technical science in Ireland and turning out such splendid pupils. Some of its men, such as Dr. Crowley gained the highest distinction in Engineering in Ireland. Mr. Hanly was for ten years Agricultural Instructor for Co. Cavan and for three years administrative Examiner to the Department of Agriculture. He is a member of the Educational Deputation to Great Britain and to the continent of Europe and a man to make his name still more known in the agricultural world.

A brother of Mr. Hanly lives at the old place at Barna. Another brother is a member of the Capuchin Community whose head house in Ireland is in Church Street Dublin. 1 …
